Steven Menashi has treated the confirmation hearing process like “a game” by dodging questions.

Steven Menashi’s silence during his nomination hearing was so disturbing that Sen. Kennedy (R-LA) says he doesn’t think he’ll support him.

Of all the threats to democracy, we MUST continue to sound an alarm about the courts. Trump’s nominees bring records that show they are radical and lack the capacity to be independent and fair. #StevenMenashi

Keep calling your Senators at 202-224-3121. Speak up. #ReclaimTheCourt
